Overview

Perspective students

Prof. Yun Huang is looking for doctoral students, master's students, and undergraduate students who are interested in designing social computing systems, e.g., location sharing apps (Foursquare, Glympse) and online video websites (Youtube, Bilibili), and studying how people use these systems by interviewing users or analyzing large collections of user behavior data.

About me

Yun Huang is an Assistant Professor of the iSchool at Syracuse University. Yun directs the Social Computing Systems  (SALT) Lab.

Before joining iSchool, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. She received both her master's degree and doctorate from the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) at UC Irvine. She earned her bachelor's degree from the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. 

Research

Grants

Prof. Huang’s research is sponsored by GoogleNational Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR)National Science Foundation and Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Interests

Her research examines new context-driven ways of designing mobile social crowdsourcing systems. She approaches this issue using the following research methods: empirical studies of how different stakeholders use and contribute to crowdsourcing systems (especially mobile social systems); systematic characterizations of contribution models with theoretical analysis of impacting factors and context in crowdsourcing environments; and design and empirical evaluation of systems that enables people’s ubiquitous accessibility to service, ideas and content, as well as to improve community well-being. Specific areas of her interest include Human Computer Interaction, Mobile Applications and Systems, Social Media and Social Networking, Inclusive Web and Cloud Computing.
